Event description

Description

Like most fairy tales, The Handless Maiden by the Brothers Grimm, reflects a compensatory psychic function for the culture, uncanny in its relevance to our troubled times. It is one of the most complete stories of individuation. This talk explores the wounding of the feminine by the patriarchal shadow, in both men and women, and how to recover the sensual and feeling functions of the psyche, through the mytho-poetic lens of the Handless Maiden.
